I was raised in Columbus Ohio and have lived in Keyna, China, Guatemala, and Scotland. I have two adopted children from Guatemala. , I have lived and directed theatre in many parts of the world: I was a headmaster in a high school in Kenya when I was in my 20s, two years in China during the Tiananmen Square conflict , three years in Guatemala where I was the Artistic Director of El Sitio Players as well a three-month honey-moon in India where I directed high-school theatre, a spiritual community in Scotland, a seminary in Chicago where I got my first Masters in Theology, New York City where I got a Masters in TESL, Colorado where I got my Masters and PhD in Theatre at CU in Boulder. I have one book published Grappling with Atrocity: Guatemalan Theatre in the 90s and dedicated it to my two adopted children from Guatemala, Maggie and Giancarlo and my wife Elizabeth who died of Leukemia in October 2006. At the college I have directed Once in a Lifetime, 4x4, Dead Man Walking, Circus Acts and Anatomy of Gray, Macbeth, Barbara Kingsolver Stories, Voice of the Prairie, Jesus Christ Superstar, Our Town, Trouble in Mind, and Distracted. This fall I will be directing The Phantom of the Opera.

I love teaching and learning from the insights of students who are engaged, open and wanting to stretch their minds by reading new voices in the theatre.
